Triangl Inspired Bikinis for Under $20!



Bikinis. They seem to be rising in prices like gasoline. I remember the good old days when I used to freak out about seeing a ROXY bikini top in Macy’s for $60. It was ridiculous! I mean, If I’m paying for a piece of polyester with some strings attached to it, you’d think a solid $10 would be fair. I could probably makeshift THREE bikinis myself for that price If I knew how to sew better. Nowadays, bikini sets are more of a fashion investment then a good pair of jeans that will last you years, or a nice winter coat. In short, bikinis are life.

The other day I was at a fancy bikini shop, and I picked up a top and bottom. The top was $170. A teeny, crudely crocheted piece of fabric. That’s when I dropped my finds in the salty blonde beach bunny employee’s hands and took my business down the street to Forever21. They were having huge swimsuit sale. I bought 14 tops. The price of it all came out to around $120. Can we just take a moment of silence.

Among all my bikini purchases was this adorable set that seemed to be inspired by Triangl Swimwear. I had owned a Triangl suit before, so I knew that when I felt this much cheaper option in my hands, it was just as nice. I bought the suit and saved a ton of money… and spent it all on Gina’s Pizza. Worth it.

I think a lot of times we aren’t as smart as we can be with our fashion choices. Sometimes we see girls wearing certain things and we search and search to find the exact match, spending hundreds on them. I’ve learned over the years, growing up with not a lot of money, that searching for pieces you want is not only incredibly fun, but extremely rewarding. You save a ton of money and you find something different and unique. No one knows when the first see my adorable sea blue swimsuit that I paid only $14 for the whole thing; all they see is that it looks good! And in the end, that’s all that matters.


Spend time searching for fashion pieces you really want to own. Look high and low, and not just in front of you. Until next time,

Eva <3

  • Olivia Fanning

    I don’t understand why anyone would spend $170 freaking dollars on a swim suit top. It doesn’t make any sense to me when there is swim suit tops like yours for 7. I don’t care how cute it is. There is probably one just like it for a lot less. Thank You for posting this Eva because you know a lot better how to spend your money and that is great to know. I like finding the best deal and you show me that even someone like you does too.

  • Olivia

    Yes! I got my “triangl” top (it looks just like this one) at Victoria’s Secret for around $20! Everyone thought it was real!

  • Rhiannon Holt

    I love how sensible and down to earth you are. That is one thing that attracted me to your channel on Youtube, and is great to see in a beauty/fashion channel. Your opinion about being wise with money, and not just spending money to impress is so great to see. You’re views and comments about money are realistic, and you can relate to your viewers! Love you Eva!!

    EVA: PLEASE give me your markkit tumblr cup. I lagit called,
    emailed, and attempted to contact markkit but they wont respond. On
    their website, they have been out of stock for at least months, maybe
    even years. But I loved it SO much, I know you probably won’t ever
    respond to this message, but it doesn’t hurt to try. 🙂
